Meatball Mushroom Soup

 Meatball Mushroom Soup
This creamy, super-thick soup is hearty with meatballs, mushrooms, barley, macaroni and rice. With dinner rolls or breadsticks, it's a simple and satisfying meal for my husband and me on a rainy day. Leftovers easily reheat for a fast, filling lunch or dinner. -JoAnn Abbott, Kerhonkson, New York
